The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, says President Muhammadu Buhari performed well in infrastructure and laid a solid foundation for developing agriculture and other sectors.

Mr Tinubu, who stated this on Tuesday in Jos at the flag-off of the APC presidential campaign for the 2023 general elections, said Mr Buhari saved Nigeria when it sank.

“Nigeria was sinking, but Buhari pulled us out and said that Nigeria will not sink in his time and in the time of the APC,” he said.

Pledging to build on the achievements of Mr Buhari, the APC presidential candidate said, “Buhari cares, and we (APC) care too.”

“We were insecure, we turned to retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, and he embarked on rehabilitation, recovery and redeeming of Nigeria.

“He started by destroying the terrorists’ flags systematically, tactically and frontally, and today there are no flags of strange military colours in any of our local governments in Nigeria,” Mr Tinubu added.

Mr Tinubu reaffirmed his commitment to good governance and the fruits that it would bring to the people.

The presidential candidate said the 2023 general election “is a fight not to leave the country to looters. We will never surrender to them to stop the efforts to clean the rot they left us in.

“We will assemble the best team to reverse the decay. We are determined to ensure that nobody will go to bed without food in their stomach.”

Mr Tinubu said if elected, his administration would continue the oil exploration in all frontiers in the basins and develop commercial oil found in Gombe State and Lake Chad Basin.
